If there are New Haven Promise applicants who have yet to fulfill the Community Service requirement of 40 hours for the Promise Scholarship, time is running out. While it is up to the applicants to ensure that they’ve met the standards of eligibility through their school’s guidance counselor, Promise has some information that can help.
Below is a list of organizations which are actively interested in volunteers. If students have their own volunteer site, they need approval from their counselor before performing and documenting those hours. If there are any questions or concerns, contact the Promise office immediately at (203) 776-6473 ext. 0072 or email Jorgieliz Casanova.
